An Introduction To Lifestyle Medicine And How Nurses Can Hold The Key To Delivering It In Practice

16 May 2024
Nursing Programme
Lifestyle Medicine is a growing area of health care practice that is rooted in evidence and behaviour change techniques to address the rising rates of non-communicable disease globally and the impact this has on population health.  It is set against six pillars of health which include mental wellbeing, social connection, health eating, physical activity, sleep and minimal exposure to harmful substances and behaviours.  Nurses already possess many of the skills and knowledge to deliver Lifestyle Medicine in practice, and there is growing representation from the nursing workforce within the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine (BSLM).   This talk will give an overview of Lifestyle Medicine and introduce the conceptualisation, history and current broader health care landscape. Practical examples and case studies will be discussed as well as the skills for delivering Lifestyle Medicine in practice.  The overarching aim of the presentation will be to develop understanding of Lifestyle Medicine and inspire confidence in the value of approaching lifestyle change with patients to address growing health care challenges in practice.
